Sorbic acid is a naturally occurring compound that’s the most commonly used food preservative in the world. It’s highly effective at inhibiting the growth of mold, which can spoil food. When Sorbic acid is sprayed on the exterior of food, mold is inhibited for a period of time that allows the food to be shipped and stored all over the globe. When it comes to human foods, Sorbic acid is most commonly used in wines, cheeses, baked goods, fresh produce and refrigerated meats and shellfish. Because of its anti-fungal properties, Sorbic acid is also used in canned goods, including pickles, prunes, maraschino cherries, figs and prepared salads.
